Jim and Ivie Baker have been hunting together for over 25 years. (Since 1986). Ivie started hunting with her Dad at age
15 (1985), traveling up to the U.P. for a whole week of hunting during the opening week of gun season. Ivie shot her
first two deer in 1988. Her first deer was a spike, shot on opening day at approximately 150 yards with a Marlin 30/30.
On the next day, she shot an 8 point at approximately 50 yards.
In 1986, Jim started going hunting with Ivie and her Dad and they haven't missed a season yet! Jim bought a Savage
30/06 that fall and headed north!
Ivie still hunts with the very same Marlin 30/30 that she was given by her Dad on Christmas day, almost 30 years ago.
She has taken several deer over the years. She took her last deer with that same gun at approx 180 yards, on the last day
of gun season in 2012.
Jim took his first deer (a 4 point) in Clare County in 1993 and took his second deer (a 7 point) in Houghton County in the
U.P. in 1997.
Both Jim and Ivie took up bow hunting in 2013 and have seen several deer, but nothing worthy of taking a shot at. 2013
proved to be a slow season for most hunters, despite the time that we put in the woods this year.

property they have for sale. They also know what signs to look for, regarding
good hunting property.... especially for deer.
